Pool Pump Function:

Water circulation is vital to a pool's overall health and appearance.  The intake and return valves allow for flow, while the pump generates movement.  Your pool pump propels water through the filter to remove debris, heater, chlorinator, or any other components that treat the water in your pool.  Water that remains stagnant will quickly deteriorate into a swampy mess.  A strong, efficient pump keeps your pool a glistening, clear blue.  The pump is paramount to maintain your water clean and healthy.  That's why it's so important to recognize when it may need replacement.

Why it's important to maintain and replace:

Pool pumps can be thought of as the heart of your pool system.  We all know how important our hearts our to the overall health of our systems and take care in keeping them healthy. Hearts pump nutrient-rich blood throughout our bodies and deliver essential vitamins and minerals to our organs.  They also help circulate that same blood to bring waste toward our filtration system to be removed from our bodies. Pool pumps work in a similar way.  They generate the flow of water that moves chemicals evenly throughout your pool and its systems.  They propel water from the pool to the filter, heater, and chlorinator so that it can be filtered, heated, and sanitized before re-entering the pool. An effective pool pump allows you to exchange the proper amount of water per day based off the size of your pool.  This flow helps to maintain the cleanliness and appearance of your pool.  It also improves that effectiveness of your pool chemicals in fighting the growth of algae and bacteria so that your can revel in your poolside experience and maintain a healthy and abundant life.

 Signs that your pool pump needs replacing:

You need only notice a few simple variables to monitor your pool pump operational effectiveness.
  1. AGE:  The typical pump will last between 10-15 years.  If it has been longer than that since you have replaced your pump, its performance is likely diminished.
  2. NOISE:  Any noise that is out of the ordinary requires attention and is likely a sign that your pump's time is coming to a close.
  3. BREAKER:  You may need a replacement if your pool pump causes a power surge and trips your breaker.
  4. POWER:  The fan and other parts of the pump could be overworked if the motor on your pump cuts out on its own.
  5. SUCTION:  It may be time for a replacement if your pump loses suction and you've ruled out other potential causes, such as a leak.
  6. PRIMING:  Water should flow through your pump at all times.  Serious damage can occur if the pump is turned on without water flowing through it.
